Matt and Morgane headed out into the sunshine at Loudenvielle ready for a big day on the bike. The dry conditions favored risks and pushing harder on the bikes, Morgane started the day with a 5th while Matt started strongly with a 10th place finish on stage 2.
Stage 3 was a short but steep test, Morgane lit up the time sheets with a stage win, pushing her up four places in the overall timings.

Another stage win and top 5 finish followed for Morgane, pushing her into 2nd overall with two stages to go. She let it rip the final two stages, pushing hard and riding strong. She maintained her second place overall after one of the closest races in EWS memory.
